Every student in the department has the opportunity to spend their third year studying at a university overseas. Being away from the UK, having greater independence, and being exposed to different ways of studying and living all lead to a greater maturity, and helps give you the opportunity for fresh thinking about your future. It’s a brilliant experience, and one that will do your studies – and your future career – a world of good.
A global marketplace
British graduates are increasingly looking for jobs outside the UK, and employers, keen to develop in the global marketplace, are looking for graduates with cross-cultural experience. Students who study abroad are in a perfect position to take advantage of the global labour market as well as adding a very different dimension to the standard student experience.
A wide range of links
We have formal links with many top-ranking universities around Europe and further afield. We can set up new links too, to match your interests, provided that we can find a good match for our compulsory 3rd year courses. Since Engineering Mathematics is a common subject worldwide, this isn't usually a problem. Studying a language is an option on all our courses, but opportunities to study overseas are open to everyone through our partnerships with English-speaking universities.
